EPORT or no report, Rush Garda Station must be reopened immediately, according to a local TD.

Dublin Fingal TD Louise O’Reilly (SF) was responding to news that the reopening of the station is likely to be recommended to Cabinet at the end of June. Alan Farrell (FG), also a TD for the constituency, and a member of the Oireachtas Justice and Equality Committee, said: “I am pleased to receive news that the reopening of Rush Garda Station this year is being actively considered as part of the pilot scheme to reopen six Garda stations.

“A Garda interim report was presented to Cabinet on Tuesday (June 13). I have been informed that this report has stated that the reopening of Rush Garda Station is receiving active consideration from An Garda Síochána. “Should the recommendation be made for the reopening of a Garda station on the northside of Dublin, it is my understanding that Rush Garda Station would be prioritised in this regard.” Deputy Farrell said many residents in the local community and surrounding areas have been understandably concerned since the station’s closure.

James's family is very grateful for support

Welcoming, active families

A NORTHSIDE family has expressed sincere thanks to all the people who have supported them after their son’s serious accident. On December 1, 2015, James Higgins, from East Wall, slipped on an astro turf surface which left him with life-altering injuries. His sight, speech and use of his arms and legs were badly affected. James, who was only twoyears-old at the time of the accident, was playing football with his older brother. Described by his father Kevin as a happy-go-lucky little boy before the accident, James is now aged four and cannot walk or speak. Also, the vision on his left side is damaged. Kevin said his son spent six months in Temple Street and a further five months at the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) in Dun Laoghaire. “He only came home before Christmas,” Kevin told Northside People. “He was in intensive care for a couple of days after the accident and it was touch and go whether he would pull through. “At the moment he’s getting some Pre-School at the Central Remedial Clinic (CRC) in Clontarf.” Kevin said his family can’t praise highly enough the people who are looking after James. “Between physiotherapists, occupational therapists (OT), nurses, doctors, dieticians and others, the amount of care he is getting his second to none,” he said. “There are so many people looking out for him. Our family is overwhelmed by the goodwill shown to James and we are so grateful for their support. “They (doctors and nurses) have given him the care they would give to their own child.” While James faces a difficult future, his father is determined to explore every option possible to make life easier for him.  Exhaustive research has led Kevin to the Adeli Medical Center, an international rehabilitation centre in Slovakia. The centre specialises in providing intensive therapy for patients with cerebral palsy, stroke, traumatic

After Kevin was told about the centre he carried out research to see if it would be beneficial for James and there was a positive outcome. “The Adeli Center seemed to be top drawer and I heard it had a really good reputation,” said Kevin. “It costs about €300 a day for therapy and we have decided to bring James there for rehabilitation. “He’s getting a bit better and we feel that a trip to this centre will help him continue with that improvement. “I believe it will do him

OPINION

• NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST

>>

Reopening Garda stations is just a start For all the spin about the ‘smart policing’ alternatives, the simple fact is that communities felt exposed without the physical presence of a Garda station. After the economic crash, more than 100 Garda stations across the country closed their doors under savage Fine Gael/Labour cuts. It was a major issue in last year’s general election, as many former TDs will attest. Any Government perceived to be soft on crime will inevitably suffer the wrath of the electorate. Former Comment: Tony McCullagh, Justice Minister, Alan Shatter, who Dublin People group editor represented Stepaside and presided over the closure of his local Garda HANE Ross was a happy man station, was among the casualties. last week – and with good Garda Commissioner Nóirín reason. As Enda Kenny’s reign O’Sullivan was asked by the as Taoiseach drew to a close, the Minister for Transport, Sport and Government to review the feasibility Tourism finally secured one of his key of reopening a number of Garda stations and last week she presented conditions for entering Government – the reopening of a Garda station in her interim report.

Highest Quality uPVC Windows & Doors “We Don’t Do Second Best”

Politically, the controversial closure of the Garda stations has proved to be the least of the Government’s worries. The credibility of the Garda Siochana has been shaken to its core by scandal after scandal, from the penalty points fiasco to the falsification of breath test figures and allegations of a smear campaign against whistleblowers. There’s little doubt there are many decent, hardworking, dedicated gardaí who are as appalled as the rest of us by the goings-on. It can be a thankless, dangerous job; their day to day tasks hampered by under-funded Garda divisions. With shocking acts of violence being carried out on our streets due to the ongoing gangland feud, never before have we needed a properly functioning police force so badly. The reopening of a handful of Garda stations needs to be more than just a token gesture. That means assigning each station enough cars and manpower to allow effective response times to crimes and longer opening hours. A part-time station is about as effective as no station at all. Unless the decision to reopen Garda stations is underpinned by proper resources, it will be perceived by the public as a cynical measure designed to appease a minister whose support is vital to the survival of the Government.

Airport cycle held in memory of tragic Rescue 116 crew MEMBERS of Dublin Airport’s Police & Fire Service held a memorial cycle last Sunday week (June 11), in memory of the crew of Rescue 116. Airport Police & Fire Service staff, together with members of An Garda Síochána and the Irish Aviation Authority were joined by some family members of the crew of Rescue 116 for the 116km memorial cycle. Airport Police & Fire Service member and organiser of the event, Bryan Russell, said: “Like everyone, we were absolutely devastated by this tragic event. “Those who work in emergency services share a special connection so when a terrible accident like this occurs it resonates deep within our com-

munity. “We wanted to have a memorial event and it felt right that we should do it on the 11th day of the sixth month by cycling seven laps of the airport's perimeter which adds up to a total of 116km.” Although the event was not originally organised as a fundraiser many people supported it by giving services and food for the cyclists as well as donating funds.  This led to a gofundme page being set up. Already, over €3,000 has been raised which is being donated to the R116 Fund. The rescue helicopter paid a special tribute to their lost colleagues on the day by conducting a flyby over the ▪▪ Members of Dublin Airport’s Police & Fire Service cyclists as they finished their ▪▪ Some of the cyclists pictured while taking part in the memorial cycle in memory of held the memorial cycle.

Thousands of volunteers, schools and companies mobilised for the annual fundraiser to enable communities across the country support bucket collections, online dona-

tions and locally organised events. Matt English, chief executive of Special Olympics Ireland, said the public’s generosity is a massive boost moving towards Ireland Games in Dublin in 2018. “We owe everyone who contributed to Collection Day 2017 a huge debt of gratitude,” said Mr English.

IWA members and their families, local community supporters and businesses, in particular Clontarf Castle, assisted IWA to raise the necessary funds to purchase the bus. They celebrated at the launch which took place at IWA’s national headquarters in Clontarf. Mobility is very important for IWA members and the organisation has its own fleet of 120 accessible buses across the country. The new accessible bus was specifically adapted to meet the needs and requirements of people with physical disabilities. The bus service is a critical resource that enables IWA members to participate in the range of services and supports which IWA pro- ▪▪ Pictured at the launch in Clontarf were (front) IWA member Peter Murray, Lisa and Keith Duffy, chief vides to people with physical dis- executive of the Irish Wheelchair Association, Rosemary Keogh, and members of the IWA.

“The new centre, which is part of a programme of expansion which I am progressing at the hospital, was developed with a focus on patient comfort, safety and privacy and the increased capacity in the centre will mean patients will no longer have to travel for dialysis treatment during the night. “I would like to thank all of the staff who have worked hard to develop such a valuable service which will benefit patients and their families." Chief executive of Beaumont Hospital, Ian Carter, said: “Beaumont Hospital is the largest and busiest Renal Unit of its kind in the Republic of Ireland. The facility provides for maintenance, acute, isolation dialysis treatments as well home

therapy treatments to patients from all over the country. The increasing demand for renal services is driven by Ireland’s increasingly ageing population, combined with the high numbers of people with diabetes and high blood pressure. The new centre will assist us to respond to this increased demand.”

Cardboard Gangsters set to be a major hit with locals Paul O’Rourke TWO young men from different sides of the city: one from Darndale, the other from Killiney. They share a common dream to build something exciting together, and set out on a journey to tell others about their new venture. Sounds like the plot of a film, but this story is more about the people behind the camera than in front of it.

Fitzgerald’s Funeral Directors an independent family-run business, which has served the families of Dublin and the surrounding areas for several decades. They combine traditional undertaking practices with modern techniques, to give bereaved families the services, support and guidance that they need. The Fitzgerald Family oversees the business on a daily basis, together, with their team of experienced professional funeral directors. They are available when you need them, 7 days a week, 24 hours per day, providing a full funeral service.

The two men are John Connors, from Darndale and Mark O’Connor, from Killiney, and what they created is the new Irish mobster movie, ‘Cardboard Gangsters’. Having previously worked together on ‘King of the Travellers’, which O’Connor wrote and directed, this time out the two shared writing duties on the script. O’Connor explained how that process worked. “John wrote the story on his own, and then he very

openly let me come on board and gave me the freedom to go off with it,” he said. Connors, most famous for playing the part of Patrick in ‘Love/Hate’, stars as Jay Connolly, a part-time DJ and low-level drug dealer. When his welfare is cut, Jay and his mates decide it’s time to move in and take over the patch of the area’s biggest drug lord, but this proves to be a major mistake.

The film was shot, and is set in Darndale, but according to Connors, it could be any working class area across Dublin. “The whole film is contained within a two-mile radius and it’s very much a neighbourhood film in the way that ‘Boyz n the Hood’ was,” said O’Connor.

The writers aren’t concerned that this very Dublin film will have problems travelling. “We’ve done better abroad than in Ireland,” said Connors, and awards at the Newport and Manchester Film Festivals would seem to back that up. O’Connor gives an example of how the movie has resonated and tells the story of an indigenous Hawaiian man who approached him after the film screened at Newport. “He told me he was crying at the end and that he just connected with the story because he grew up with the same situation in a rough part of Hawaii,” he said. The film relies heavily on Irish music and one sequence in particular, containing the Damien Dempsey song ‘Serious’, is particularly effective. “That was the first song I put into the script,” said Connors. “His music is so cinematic.” And as for the message they are trying to get across to their audience, the pair are confident that this is not simply a glorification of gang life violence. “Community leaders in the area read the script and loved the message,” said Connors. “They are the people I’d be getting the most backlash from if it didn’t work.” O’Connor said the father/ son relationship and realising the consequences of your actions were two important ideas they wanted to convey. “The most important message to young people is: don’t get involved in crime,” he added.  ‘Cardboard Gangsters’ opened in cinemas on June 16.

Duffy and Keane receive the Lord Mayor’s Award LORD Mayor of Dublin Brendan Carr got an opportunity to ‘talk to Joe’ last week when he presented an award to legendary broadcaster Joe Duffy. Clontarf resident Joe was the recipient of a Lord Mayor’s Award and received the accolade at a ceremony in the Mansion House. Joe received the award for his long and varied career in RTÉ as a reporter, producer and presenter. He is perhaps best known

for presenting one of Ireland’s leading radio shows, ‘Liveline’, on RTÉ Radio 1 where he gives people the opportunity to have their voice heard to speak up against issues of concern. Almost 400,000 listeners tune in daily. “I'm deeply honoured for myself, RTÉ and the Liveline listeners to receive this award,” said Joe. Paralympian Ellen Keane, from Clontarf, was also the recipient of a Lord Mayor’s Award.

▪▪ Joe Duffy with his Lord Mayor’s Award. PHOTO: CONOR McCABE PHOTOGRAPHY The Lord Mayor said the awards are all about saying thank you on behalf of all the people of Dublin, to citizens who, through their ordinary

everyday lives, enrich this city in an extraordinary way. “It is one of the highlights of my year as Lord Mayor to present these awards and

I’ve chosen to award two exceptional individuals who contribute to the proud reputation of Dublin city,” said Mayor Carr.

30th anniversary special

▪▪ Some of the Northside People team pictured in their offices in Santry. PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA

We've been serving local communities for 30 years PICTURED above are just some of the faces behind Dublin’s most successful local newspaper, Northside People, where our 30th anniversary celebrations are well underway. Over the decades we have endeavoured to bring you the best local news in Dublin. We’ve come some way since our modest 12-page edition first published in May 1987. But in essence, we are still doing now what we set out to do then – to provide Northside communities with a medium for their views and opinions, while giving local businesses a powerful and effective advertising vehicle. This special feature is a tribute to all those who made it happen, from our dedicated staff to loyal readers and advertisers – some of whom have been with us since our first edition. The paper was established in 1987 by Robin and Sylvia Webb and a small team of people who had previously worked in the free newspa-

per industry. Much like today, they were challenging times to be setting up a business and the endurance of the Northside People brand is testimony to Robin and Sylvia’s confidence in the product. Last year, we featured in the popular RTÉ series, ‘The Local Eye’, which took an affectionate look at the role of regional newspapers in Ireland. The fly-on-the-wall documentary gave viewers a unique insight into the continuing popularity of local papers, despite the commercial challenges posed by digital media. Today, we publish three weekly editions across the capital – Northside People (East), Northside People (West) and Southside People, with a print run of 120,000 copies. Our combined weekly readership figures for all three titles are 329,000 (TGI), giving our advertisers unrivalled exposure to potential customers throughout Dublin. Our dynamic sales team is

headed by general manager Conor Mahon, who brings with him extensive experience from the newspaper and advertising industry. In addition to our printed offerings, we have a popular website (www.dublinpeople. com) and in keeping with the times, we have embraced the age of social networking with our Twitter and Facebook pages. We deeply value the hard work, dedication and pro-

fessionalism of all our staff – past and present – who have helped make Northside People the leading brand it is today. Since 2013, we have been working closely with Celtic Media Group (CMG) who provide us with professional pre-press, printing and management services. As publishers of a number of leading local titles, including the Westmeath Examiner, Connaught Telegraph, Meath

Chronicle and the Anglo Celt, CMG has also been to the forefront in developing online synergies for its newspapers in the face of the challenges - and opportunities - presented by digital media. It has been a genuine pleasure dealing with our readers, community groups, politicians and our advertisers. We look forward to continuing our journey with you all. ▪▪ General manager Conor Mahon

Somewhat prophetically, we concluded that ‘The Commitments’ looked set to mark the beginning of “a new and exciting spate of books dealing specifically with the Northside – not to mention Kilbarrack, home of the blues”. In politics, we featured an interview with the former Fine Gael TD Alice Glenn, described in our introduction as “an outspoken critic of all that is lax and liberal in Irish Society”. Outlining her opposition to the Single European Act, she warned it would impose a “secular humanist ideology” on the country and that abortion, divorce and euthanasia will be “forced upon the people of this State”. In his ‘Video Scene’ column, our first editor Tim O’Brien (now a journalist with the Irish Times) reviewed new releases such as

‘National Lampoon’s European Vacation’, ‘Ruthless People’ and ‘The Supergrass’. Ending on a positive note, a report on our back page confirmed that Beaumont Hospital would be open and operational by the end of the year. Judged against today’s production standards, the first edition of Northside People looks a bit dated, although we were all very proud of it at the time. However, lurking between its 12 modest pages were local stories about local people doing things locally. And that’s a tradition we have proudly carried with us to the present day.

Media careers were born here IF WE were to visit the newsrooms of most major newspapers or media organisations in this country, chances are we’d bump into a few familiar faces. Some of the most talented writers and broadcasters in Ireland first cut their journalistic teeth in the Northside People newsroom. As we celebrate 30 years of local journalism, it’s a fitting time to pay tribute to those who helped make us what we are today. Our first editor was Tim O’Brien who created the local news template that we follow to this day.

When Neil moved across the Liffey, he was replaced by one of our most versatile journalists, Pat O’Rourke, who sits in the editor’s chair these days. Pat brought his own dynamic to the role, infusing the content of the paper with a heady mix of sport (his specialist subject), local news and features. Aidan Kelly, from Ballymun, was the first editor of the Northside People west edition, a role he made in own for many years before moving to America in 2006. Jack Gleeson, who we always credit with bringing us kicking and screaming into the technological age, replaced Aidan as editor. With amazing foresight, Jack first established the Dublin People website back in 1998. He continues to hold the role of Northside People west edition editor. Over the years we have been privileged to work with some great journalists, who are the engine of any local newspaper. Many notable names from national and digital media (and public relations) started their journalism careers with us, people such as Sinead Crowley (Arts & Media Correspondent with RTE and author), Melanie Finn (Evening Herald), Siobhan Maguire (TalkWrite), Fiona Gartland (Irish Times), Aine Kerr (Facebook) and Brian Whelan (Channel 4).

We’d also like to pay tribute to all the talented photographers who have contributed to Northside People down through the years, namely Stephen O’Reilly, Gerry Mooney, Tony Kelly, Frank Scalzo, Paul Nicholls, Gwen Kelly, Conor O Mearain, Frank Malone and Kim Haughton. Special mention goes to Darren Kinsella who has provided exceptional photography services to us since the mid-1990s. Apologies if we have inadvertently left anyone out.

30th anniversary special

Mrs Brown’s favourite newspaper SINCE 2011, we have had the pleasure of working with the talented team behind the TV sensation that is ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’. We have been tasked with producing front and back page ‘mock-ups’ for the hit show since its second series. You may well have seen Mrs Brown having a read of Northside People while having a cup of tea in the kitchen, or Grandad catching up with the sports pages (when he’s not sleeping). We have thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with the show’s writer and creator, Brendan O’Carroll, on many of the funny headlines that have appeared on our screens.

We have produced spoof papers for all the ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’ Christmas specials and we have even appeared in the big screen version, ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys - D’Movie’. One of our most popular ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’ headlines (pictured left) was ‘FEXIT – Finglas wants to leave the EU’, which was used in last summer’s live special to celebrate 60 years of comedy at the BBC. We’d like to say a big thanks to Brendan O’Carroll and his producer, Fiona Gibney, for staying true to their Northside roots and choosing us as the show’s official newspaper. We are delighted to play a small role in such a successful show.

EDUCATION Teacher supply report launched by Minister Bruton A NEW report into teacher supply in Ireland has outlined the work that will be required to establish a sustainable model of post primary teacher supply. The ‘Striking the Balance’ report presents an analysis of the number of teachers required by the education system and it was launched earlier this month by Minister for Education & Skills, Richard Bruton. “The report sets out an approach to planning that scopes out the work necessary to develop a model for achieving a better balance between teacher supply and demand in the medium to long term,” he said. “In this light, I note with interest that the Report

highlights how essential it will be to use more and better data analysis to support this goal. “The learners in our education system are entitled to a high quality learning experience. “A more reliable supply of teachers which meets the identified needs of the system, and which continues to adhere to the high standards set down by the Teaching Council, is therefore crucial.” The Minister says he has asked his officials to consider how the development of a model can be progressed from within available resources. “As part of this process, engagement with the Higher Education Authority and providers of initial teacher education programmes will be nec-

essary in order to ensure that the supply of teachers meets demand and that we have the correct balance of teachers in the each of the various subject areas,” he added. “In that regard I am pleased to note that the Teaching Council is due to meet with all higher education institutions shortly to consider how a more targeted and co-ordinated approach could be adopted to meet the identified needs of the system. “The outcome of this interaction will inform how my Department might best progress this issue.” Publication of the report has been welcomed by Teaching Council Director, Tomás Ó Ruairc. “This is the first time that there has been a coordinated effort between

teachers, and vowed to address the issue. The Minister has outlined a number of measures to increase the pool of teachers available to schools, in particular to fill short-term vacancies. These measures will be considered over the coming weeks. They measures include ensuring that as many retiring and retired teachers remain on the Teaching Council register and increasing the limits for employment for a teacher while on career break.

EDUCATION Major new project aims to improve mental health A MAJOR project to improve young people's mental health in the higher education sector in Ireland has been launched. The project was jointly announced by the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) the HSE, the National Office of Suicide Prevention (NOSP) and the Minister for Mental Health and Older People, Helen McEntee. USI will receive funding to hire a Mental Health Project Manager who will conduct research in students’ mental health through a new national third level mental campaign. The project, which is set to start in July, will see USI working with key stakeholders across the country in mental health to break mental health stigma, promote services and train student leaders to identify and respond to their peers’ mental health needs.

▪▪ The new project will begin in July and last for nine months. Speaking at the launch of the project, USI President Annie Hoey said: “USI is proud to be partnering with the HSE, NOSP and

the Minister for Mental Health and Older People in this new exciting venture. “Annually USI has run a major national third level

mental health campaign, ‘Chats for Change’ and we are excited to see the campaign develop further, while also gathering re-

search on what students need and want from mental health services. “We’re keen to discover what is the main contributing factor to one's mental health and how the student movement can tackle those needs to best support young people and students in Ireland.” Minister McEntee said her department was delighted to be working more closely with USI to see the project grow. “The potential of this project will allow my department identify what students need in relation to mental health,” she added. “We’re looking forward to seeing how Government and the department can approach students in relation to mental health, teach resilience and promoting services. “We see the USI as a key stakeholder in this and I am really looking forward to the research and the campaigns to come

from this major collaborative project.” The Mental Health Project Manager will integrate national level partnerships with local Students’ Unions and develop a core student-focused approach to mental health in Ireland. The project will provide

SPORT GAA STARS ATTEND SKILLS DAY

GAA Museum to host series of seminars THE GAA Museum will host an exciting and controversial series of seminars exploring the theme of ‘Sport and Politics’ and the effects they have had on one another since the 1870s, at their 2017 Summer School, which runs from Thursday, June 29 to Saturday, July 1.

▪▪ Roisin Ni Chathasaigh, from Dublin, pictured with Dublin hurling star Liam Rushe and Carlow’s Kate Nolan after participating in the camogie competition at the John West Skills’ Day in the National Sports Campus, Abbottstown. The Skills’ Day was an opportunity for Ireland’s rising football, hurling and camogie stars to show their skills ahead of the John West Féile na nÓg and John West Féile na nGael competitions. PHOTO: CODY GLENN/SPORTSFILE

Attendees lucky enough to secure a ticket will be engaged and challenged as some of the most divisive topics in sport will be discussed by leaders across a plethora of disciplines, such as sociology, politics, sport, and history. National and international experts will contest long held beliefs and bring to light topics not previously considered: how the GAA suffered in the 1890s due to its support for Charles Stewart Parnell; the issues and

divisions in Irish soccer that led to the establishment of two separate governing bodies in 1921; the struggle for an Irish identity through the Olympic movement pre1922; how the Irish republican movement has viewed sport since 1923; and the cultural trauma felt by the people of Liverpool in the aftermath of the 1989 Hillsborough tragedy.      The keynote talk from internationally renowned Doctor Harry Edwards, the former Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley, is much anticipated. Dr Edwards will speak on the history of sport and racial segregation in America from the 1960s. Attendees of the Summer School will have the chance to meet Dr Edwards one-toone as he signs copies of the 50th anniversary edition of

his pioneering book on sport and struggle, ‘The Revolt of the Black Athlete’. Commenting on this year’s series of seminars, Mark Reynolds, the GAA Museum Archivist, said: “The event is open to the public to attend and is a must for anyone with a keen interest in sport, politics or history. “We are honoured to welcome renowned international guest speakers, including

Dr Harry Edwards, Professor John Hughson and Professor Alan Bairner, who will ensure this is an engaging and stimulating experience for all.” Tickets cost €45 per day or €120 for a three-day pass. Lunch and tea/coffee are included in the price. Advance booking is required as the event is expected to sell out quickly. Visit www. crokepark.ie/summerschool

Martine McCutcheon is hoping to resurrect her music career with a new album. She’s holding a showcase in London for her new record, ‘Lost And Found’. Martine topped the charts in 1999 with her song ‘Perfect Moment’. Her last album release was in 2002. She’s not a bad performer so hopefully she’ll do better in the charts this time round.

Jennifer Hudson denies she’ll be making a permanent swap to ‘The Voice US’. It has not been confirmed whether she’ll be returning to the UK version. Jennifer says she has no plans on ditching the UK show for the US one. That’s what they all say!

Poor old Richard Hammond, who apologised to his family after having another brush with death while filming ‘The Grand Tour’. He was airlifted to hospital in Switzerland after crashing a car during a test lap on a racecourse. He’s like a cat with nine lives!

Ice Cube has received one of Hollywood’s biggest honours. The rapper and actor got his own star on the Walk of Fame in Los Angeles. He was given the 2,614th star in front of the Musicians’ Institute.

Katy Perry has made up with Taylor Swift. They’ve had long-running beef for years, but Katy now says she loves Taylor and has apologised for anything she’s ever done to her. Katy made the revelation in a recent podcast episode, adding that there are bigger problems in the world than their feud.

That’s it from me. Until next week

They return to play the Leopardstown stage this Thursday, June 22, as part of the Bulmers Live series of gigs. In advance of this week’s show, we caught up with Podge from HamsandwicH. 1. Best gig you've been to in Dublin? Tough one. Between Built to Spill/The National in Whelan’s. BTS were Incredible. Guitarist broke his custom painted/doodled Strat and handed me the butchered body of it, signed by all band members. Still have it. 2. Most Memorable moment in Dublin? For some reason the day the Marriage Referendum was passed jumps out most. It was a glorious sunny day and I was down at Dublin Castle. There was a crazy sense of overwhelming happiness across Dublin. History made and the glass ceiling very much smashed. 3. Most 'want to forget' moment in Dublin? Any Paddy’s Day around Temple Bar.

First album was a cassette of ‘Appetite for Destruction’ by Guns N' Roses I bought in a market in Newry in County Down. Luckily it was an official one. Last one was the new EL VY record 5. When you're not playing music, what else do you do? Love finding new music,

browsing the crap out of adverts.ie for a sweet deal, watching movies and new Netflix series or the odd time I'll read a book - mainly a biography on someone. 6. Who are your influences? Pavement (I'm obsessed), Beck, Bowie, Sparklehorse, Flaming Lips, Fleetwood Mac, Low, Pixies, Velvet Underground, Built to Spill… I'll stop now.

7. If you weren't in HamsandwicH, who would make up your ideal band? I'd have myself and Doug Martsch on backing vocals with Stevie Nicks on lead; David Bowie on sax and in charge of stage set and costume design; Prince on piano; Keith Moon on drums; and Richie Egan on bass. 8. Any tips on life? Yep, shop in Musicmaker, buy Sriracha sauce and use

it on everything you possibly can. Always pre-heat a sandwich toaster before you put your cheese sambo in it. 9. First person you'd invite to your party? Spike Milligan and Mitch Hedburg if they were still around. 10. Last person you'd invite to your party? I’d have to say Nigel Farage.

New services at Dublin Airport announced DUBLIN Airport welcomed the announcement of new services last week including twice-weekly flights to Stockholm from Norwegian. Dublin Airport Managing Director, Vincent Harrison, said the Stockholm route, together with a recent increase in frequency on its Dublin-Oslo service, represents a 50 per cent surge in capacity on Norwegian’s routes between Dublin and Scandinavia this summer. “We are delighted to welcome Norwegian’s new Dublin to Stockholm service,” he added. “And we look forward to welcoming the airline’s two new transatlantic routes from Dublin in a few weeks.”

Norwegian first launched services from Dublin Airport in 2009 to Copenhagen and Oslo. The airline is growing its business from Dublin further with the addition of

a daily transatlantic flight to Stewart International in New York state and a five times weekly service to Providence, Rhode Island from July 1.

Meanwhile, Lufthansa has announced the addition of a fourth daily service on its Dublin to Frankfurt route this winter. That means Lufthansa’s service between Dublin and Frankfurt will increase from 21 to 28 flights per week representing a 30 per cent increase in capacity when the winter schedule begins at the end of October. It’s Lufthansa’s sixth expansion of its Dublin services since 2014. “The increase in capacity is testament to the popularity of Frankfurt and the onward connections that they offer and will provide further flexibility and choice for consumers,” said Harrison. Andreas Koester of Lufthansa said Dublin had

continued to shine as a key market for Lufthansa within its network. “The demand for our services has continued to grow and we have been able to increase capacity accordingly,” he added. “This, along with the recent introduction of Lufthansa’s double daily service between Dublin and Munich and the twice weekly service between Cork and Geneva with Swiss, reaffirms the Lufthansa Group as the biggest foreign Airline Group in Ireland. “This growing demand for seats on our flights proves once again that discerning travellers appreciate the way Lufthansa has responded to the challenges of the travel market in the

face of ever-increasing competition. “To maintain the leading position in our market we must be better than anyone else in terms of reliability and innovation at a competitive price. Our passengers also know that when they book with Lufthansa they are guaranteed to receive our high-quality on-board service.” The Lufthansa Group, which also includes SWISS and Eurowings currently has 65 weekly departures from Dublin Airport to Cologne, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Geneva, Munich and Zurich. Lufthansa has been operating at Dublin Airport since 1972 and has carried almost 6.3 million passengers on its services since then.

Fibromyalgia and OsteOpathy

Fibromyalgia is a chronic complaint causing widespread pain and sensitivity to muscles and soft tissues.The initial stages of the disease often go unnoticed, as the patient may only suffer from minimal fatigue,soreness, gastrointestinal complaints or insomnia. As the disease progresses,the symptoms become more severe and widespread, effecting sleep, digestion, bowel movements, joint stiffness and more. This occurs because the nervous system is in a state of constant irritation. Irritation to the nervous system can be caused by old injuries or traumas,stress, drug use or abuse, environmental factors or anything that overloads the bodies defences. The Classical Osteopathic approach to fibromyalgia begins with treating the old injuries in a manor which works in harmony with the body therefore taking stress off the nervous system. The more irritation that can be removed from the body, the more the nervous system can normalise. This in turn allows the body to begin to heal itself. Blood flow and drainage are improved increasing oxygen levels and ridding the system of toxins.In the treatment of fibromyalgia,relaxation and Craniosacral techniques may be used, tailored to the individual needs of the patient.This means the treatment is gentle and relaxing.As Fibromyalgia is a chronic disease treatment is ongoing and may require the intervention of other health care professionals.

Colin White, who is also the National Projects Manager of the Irish Kidney Association, said: “This year the World Transplant Games Federation is celebrating 30 years and we can be proud of the tradition that our team has in the competition. “Our team is known for its sense of fair play as well as its sense of fun with both underpinned by a steely competitive edge.

“Our athletes are coming from across the country and their dedication and commitment is not only to their training, in practical terms, they also fund the vast majority of the costs involved. “Their motivation is driven by a determination to be Fit for Life, to show other ‘patients’ what can be achieved post-transplant and to encourage the general public to have a family discussion about organ donation.” Kilkenny Hurling All Star Michael Fennelly gave a motivational talk to the team ahead of the World Games last month.

Lyme disease

As outbreaks of Lyme disease are reported throughout the country we have put together some information on how to prevent your dog transmitting Lyme disease by preventing tick bites.

Can my dog get Lyme disease? Lyme disease is an inflammatory disease that is mainly spread by ticks. Humans and pets (mostly dogs but in very rare cases cats) can be infected by Lyme disease. Not all ticks carry Lyme disease, the tick must have previously bitten a deer or rodent infected with Lyme disease and then have bitten your dog to pass on the disease. Dogs who are exposed to wildlife or forested areas are at higher risk of contracting Lyme disease. Basically wherever there are ticks there is a chance that your dog could get bitten and become infected.

Give a Dog a Home Today! Phone us on 01 8791000

Dogs Trust is based in Finglas, just off Exit 5 on the M50. Map and directions can be found on their website at www.dogstrust.ie. You can also pop up for a visit. Dogs Trust is open six days a week from 12-4pm. The centre is closed all day Tuesday. You can also find Dogs Trust on Facebook at www.facebook.com/dogstrustireland or Twitter @DogsTrust_IE

A good quality spot on product will help prevent Lyme disease

www.equipetstores.com

She is an active lady and loves her daily walks and activities. Maisie is really good at doggie brain games such as scent games, agility, obedience training and

her favourite game is fetch. Maisie is a typical Collie and is full of beans so she would suit an active household where she will have lots of company. Maisie really has huge potential and will make the perfect agility or flyball partner and a very loyal companion! If you think you can offer Maisie a home, then contact Dogs Trust on 018791000.

How do I protect my dog from Lyme disease? The easiest way to prevent Lyme disease is to prevent tick bites. To do this you can do some of the following; Keep your grass cut and bushes trimmed back, remove any fallen leaves from your garden Check your pet daily for ticks especially if they have been outdoors, take extra care to check under your dog’s ears, head, neck underbelly and feet as these are areas where ticks can hide within folds of skin and fur Remove any ticks straight away with a Tick remover comb, designed especially to safely and gently remove ticks from your dog’s skin. We would also recommend speaking to your vet if you find ticks on your dog A good quality spot on product will help prevent Lyme disease by making your dog’s blood distasteful to ticks and eliminating ticks from latching on and feeding longterm. Early diagnosis is crucial to avoid more complicated serious conditions developing, so it is important to contact your vet if you have any concerns. Once the diagnosis is established, antibiotic treatment is usually very effective and early.

Tool used to remove ticks

Symptoms of Lyme disease in dogs Unlike humans your dog won’t display the tell-tale rash associated with an infected tick bite and a dog infected with Lyme disease can suffer a range of symptoms. The most common symptoms can include;

• Swelling and pain in one or more joints • Decrease in appetite • Fatigue, no interest in activity nearly a depressed like state • Fever • Difficulty breathing • Sensitive to touch

MOTORING Renault Zoe will calm ‘range anxiety’ Seán Creedon ‘RANGE anxiety’ seems to be the big worry for potential new owners of electric cars. Everybody agrees that our Government needs to offer more incentives if electric cars are to make any serious impact here. But Paddy Magee, MD of Renault Ireland, has an idea. Paddy suggests that when people leave their regular petrol or diesel cars in to their local garage to be serviced, they should be given an electric vehicle as a courtesy car for a few hours. That seems a reasonable suggestion as ‘range anxiety’ wouldn’t bother drivers of petrol or diesel cars for a short period. The straight-talking Renault boss also thinks that sales and/or marketing people could be encouraged to drive electric cars, if Benefit in Kind (BIK) was abolished. That’s all by way of introducing the new Zoe Z40

▪▪ There will be no ‘range anxiety’ with the Renault Zoe. where Renault claim you could get up to 400km without charging. In reality, it’s probably closer to 300km in summer and 200km in winter. In addition to Renault, there are now five other companies offering electric motors in Ireland: BMW, Hyundai, Nissan, Tesla and VW. So the electric market is growing, but very slowly. Tesla claim that you can get up to 600 kilometres with a full charge in one of their cars, but that vehicle will

cost you at least €100,000. Renault’s Zoe is more modest with a starting price of €23,490. That includes the price of the battery, an important item, which can be deemed an extra with some other manufacturers. We took the car on a scenic drive from Stillorgan and around the Blessington lakes to a ‘green’ restaurant near Athy and came home via the motorway. After all that there’s wasn’t a whole lot of range left. But to be fair, we didn’t know what the

original range reading was, as the button was covered off on our trip out of Dublin so that there was no cheating as to who would be the most economical drivers. Tesla plan to have their own super charging points, but the only one in operation so far is at Ballacolla at Junction 3 on the M8. Meanwhile, with the Zoe you can avail of 1,200 ESB public charging points on the island of Ireland. And of course, you can also charge the car at home. Electric

cars don’t tend to be very attractive looking and the Zoe is no different. It’s a small car and to be honest I can’t see many executives buying one, even if BIK was dropped. Inside, the decor is just about average, dark but with a white roof. There is room in the back for three adults. The boot is a decent size, but sadly no spare wheel. My only complaint is that the ‘PRNDS’ marking alongside the gear lever is not highlighted enough. I drove the car during the day and maybe the markings do light up at night. Also, there have been suggestions that people are putting on weight due to eating at various charging points while the car battery is charging! Naturally, there are zero emissions and Renault hope to announce a PCP offer of zero per cent in the coming weeks. So next time you are leaving in your car to be service, ask the garage if they have an electric courtesy car?

This Suzuki S-Cross is very lively Seán Creedon SUZUKI wouldn’t be considered major players in the Irish car market, but they do have many loyal customers. The company now has 23 dealers around the country and they are hoping that with a range of new cars, which include the revamped S-Cross, new Baleno, the recently launched Ignis and the new Swift, they should be able to gain a stronger foothold in the Irish market. I was in the Peak District

in England recently, where the roads are very similar to Irish country roads, to test the new Suzuki Swift which arrived here this summer. In October last year, I was with a group of Irish motor writers who travelled to Wales to test the revamped S-Cross. In Wales we got an opportunity to drive on to the famous Great Orme just outside Llandudno. Access to the Great Orme costs two pounds fifty pence, but it was money well spent on what is only one of two roll roads in the UK. Back in Ireland last week,

my S-Cross test car came in a lovely shade of red. Red is a colour that will give you a lift on even the dullest day of the year and I’m told that it’s also the best colour to own when thinking about a trade-in. The main change in this version of the S-Cross is the 1.0 Boosterjet engine which provides plenty of power in what I would describe as a very lively car. Apart from the new engine, the other big change is the impressive new-style grille at the front, which gives the car a proper SUV look. And the

▪▪ This Suzuki S-Cross is an impressive car. LED lights do add a touch of class to the car. Inside, the infotainment screen certainly catches your eye, but it doesn’t really take over the dash area. Suzuki say that one of the main complaints about the old model was the quality of the materials used inside the car; they have remedied that problem now by using softer materials in the cabin. There is plenty of room

for five adults and the car handled very well for me on motorways and indeed on country boreens. Again, the words ‘lively’ and ‘frugal’ keep coming into my head. There is good space in the boot, 430 litres to be exact, which is the same as a Nissan Qashqai, but sadly no spare wheel. No real complaints, but naturally I would have preferred a spare wheel to the

repair kit provided. But on the plus side, it had a proper old-fashioned handbrake, which is always a plus. Prices start at €20,995, while the top of the range model I drove will cost you €25,995. The 1.6-litre diesel costs another thousand euro. Road tax is €200. Lots of extras in my test model such as reversing camera, also available with a full length sunroof.

The entry level price, which is very competitive, comes in at €1,000 more than the Vitara, which is aimed at ‘singletons’, while Suzuki is definitely aiming the S-Cross at the family car market where they are willing to take on the likes of the Qashqai and the Skoda Yeti. You can get details of the S-Cross and all cars in the Suzuki range at www.suzuki. ie

Don’t replace it! Reface it! Give your kitchen/Bedroom that

Laminates and engineered wood flooring are fast becoming the new fashionable choice for many homes. "Wood and wood-style flooring is huge, it is going everywhere now," said Aisling O'Reilly of Tile Merchant.

FACELIFT?

We are finding customers want wood running all through their homes, including in their kitchens, they don’t want to break up the look with tiles. Dublin based Tile Merchant supply much of the tile trade in Ireland as well as floor and wall coverings and bathroomware to some of the country’s biggest new developments. "We are finding customers want wood running all

through their homes, including in their kitchens, they don't want to break up the look with tiles," said Aisling. "The trend is spreading to bathrooms too with wood-effect porcelain becoming increasingly popular for bathrooms and wet areas."

The demand is such that Aisling recently travelled to Italy to source the most genuine wood-effect porcelain tiles on the market. "We have just introduced a Rope Range large format wood-effect porcelain tile that is hard to tell apart from an engineered wooden board," she says. Wood-look laminates and porcelain tiles have all the style and appearance of solid wood with the advantage that they are far easier to maintain and install.

Reasonably priced and low maintenance, these flooring options have lots to recommend them. Tough and very hardwearing, laminate flooring has a top layer that is resistant to scratches, stains and fading. "It will continue looking good for years, indeed our German laminate mix comes with the longest warranty – a residential guarantee of 30 years," said Aisling. While engineered wooden floors are just as beautiful as their traditional coun-

up-market look for only a fraction of the cost of replacing 1-2 days No Fuss Installation

It makes sense!

HOUSE & HOME terparts, their advantages include less instillation work and more budget-friendly options. "If you want the look and feel of solid wood floors without the associated cost, then engineered wood is the smart choice as only the top layer is timber," said Aisling. According to the flooring expert, plank size and the direction a floor is laid, can dramatically alter the look and feel of a room. "Wide boards are very on-trend now because they make a room appear more spacious, the less floorboard joins you have the bigger a room will feel," she explains. "Wide planks with very little grain detail are also very useful in creating the sophisticated lime-washed Scandi look, especially if you opt for very pale boards which are very much in vogue." "Herringbone is another of the top floor looks and our Herringbone Darwin engineered wood which has a Hampton beach house style, is proving very popular." Tile Merchant's 8,000 sq ft showroom in Dublin's Ballymount features an extensive range of wooden flooring as well as bathroom ware, tiles, cladding, paving and countertops. "We offer a supply and fit service and our experts are always on hand to guide you in making the perfect flooring choice for your home and your budget," said Aisling.

EMPLOYMENT/BUSINESS

Luas Cross City testing warmly welcomed by business groups TESTING of trams on the new Luas Cross City green line extension marks a major milestone in the project according to Dublin Chamber, the representative body for businesses in the Dublin region. Two trams running at speeds of between 5-10kmh were due to be tested on Saturday between St Stephen’s Green, College Green and over to O’Connell Street. The last trams on O’Connell Street were the numbers 6, 7 and 8, which ran from Nelson’s Pillar towards the Southside until 1949. On Sunday the gauge test run continued between Broadstone and Cabra and through the city centre again. The gauge run tests in-

nificant upheaval over the past four years. “But it's very much a case of short-term pain for longterm gain, with the city set to reap the benefits of the new line for decades to come." The new Luas line will be tested throughout the summer months and is due to take its first passengers in early December. Dublin Chamber believes this will provide a boost for businesses in the run up to Christmas. "An early December opening presents all city centre stakeholders with an opportunity to encourage people to come in and enjoy the city centre this Christmas,” said Burke. “The number of people coming into Dublin city centre is increasing all the time. As the economy continues to grow, the pressure on our transport network will increase. “It is vital that the Luas Cross City project is followed up by much-needed continued investment in Dublin's transport infrastructure." Luas Cross City is predicting the new route will bring in an additional 10 million passengers a year to the city centre once it’s up and running.

Research carried out by Dublin city business group, DublinTown, has shown that 44 per cent of Dubliners surveyed are more likely to visit the city once the new Luas line is operating. "Throughout the construction phase of this project we have worked closely with Luas Cross City, the NTA, gardai and other stakeholders to minimise the impact of the works on businesses and the city,” said Richard Guiney, CEO DublinTown. “This cooperation has seen footfall rise in the city each year despite the extensive works being carried out. “Businesses can’t wait to see this much-needed transport system passing by their premises. “We look forward to getting a glimpse of how the new system will look and work during these test runs. It’s an exciting time for the city!" Members of the public are asked to keep a safe distance from trams and obey the instructions of gardai and marshals during any test runs. Meanwhile a temporary traffic light system to control traffic crossing Cabra Road Bridge has been put be in place to facilitate the Luas Cross City works.

EMPLOYMENT/BUSINESS

Temping: the pros outweigh the cons Cormac Spencer CANDIDATES searching for a new job are united in terms of what they are looking for – a high salary (naturally!), and something which interests and motivates them and which offers a good work life balance in terms of hours, commute and holidays. However, this unanimity is lacking in the type of contract people will consider regardless of whether or not it meets the above criteria.

pect to future employers. It also provides a great opportunity for those looking to transition to a new industry and gain experience in their preferred field. In what is a busy jobs market, employers realise the immediate nature of temp assignments mean their choice of candidates is limited, and are therefore more open to hiring capable people who may not be the perfect match on paper. Whereas the same CV put forward for a permanent role may be rejected, time constraints offer candidates a foot in the door which can be leveraged to gain future opportunities. Time and time again I see candidates offered permanent jobs on the back of a successful temp assignment. By making themselves invaluable during their time with a company temps negate the need for employers to go through a time consuming interview process when

permanent vacancies arrive. Why waste the time when there is a candidate who has learned the ropes, knows the systems, and is available immediately sitting right under your nose? Under a relatively new European directive (Agency Worker Directive) not only are companies obliged to pay temps the same rate and offer the same holidays as permanent staff, but all temps must be notified about permanent vacancies arising within the company, meaning taking up a temp role can open up opportunities. The old mantra of being easier to get a job when you have a job holds true. Finally, a common misconception of temping is that it precludes people from looking for a permanent job. Not true. Employers who offer temp work, are grown up enough to know that most people will eventually want a permanent job, and will accommodate reasonable requests for time

Permanent roles are seen as the most desirable option, while many are reticent to consider temporary assignments or ‘temp jobs’ (which operate on a week to week basis and are paid through agency). It’s not impossible to understand this perspective from someone in permanent employment as taking up a temp position does entail a loss of job security, but why would someone without a job and looking for work turn down an opportunity that suits their skills, experience and salary expectations? While there are drawbacks to temping, the pros outweigh the cons. For people looking to enter or re-enter the workforce, it allows them to gain recent experience and enhance their skills making ▪▪ While there are drawbacks to temping, the pros them a more attractive pros- outweigh the cons.
